  • Women, Water & Rivers. Kathmandu, Nepal. March 6th - 10th 2019

    This year’s Day of Action for Rivers theme is in celebration of the role of women in protecting and managing our rivers. Women are often the primary users of water in their households and communities. Tasked with securing, maintaining, and using water resources in agriculture, fisheries, forest and land management, women sustain life through their relationships to water. Despite this, women are far less represented in decisions about how water and rivers are managed and developed. Deep inequalities persist, with men holding a majority of the decision making power and influence.



    International Rivers is working to ignite and promote a global movement of women water leaders. This movement will come together for the first time at the Women and Rivers Congress, on March 6th - 10th.

    L’Associazione Progetto Donna e ActionAid, sezione Perugia, Associazione culturale CiaoRino presentano : STOP & GO  (Insieme per il parco)

    Il nostro progetto nasce come collaborazione tra varie associazioni del territorio umbro che, con il proprio lavoro, svolgono un importante ruolo di sensibilizzazione e cambiamento sociale e culturale.

    Progetto Donna, in particolare, lavora da tre anni, nella prevenzione delle discriminazioni e violenza e nel supporto psicologico e giuridico delle vittime di ogni ingiustizia.

    Questo progetto nasce in seguito alla trasformazione dei luoghi in terrae nullius, in cui i cittadini hanno difficoltà a trovare un’appartenenza identitaria, pur rivendicando a gran voce il desiderio di riappropriazione di quegli spazi e luoghi una volta legati a doppio filo alla città e ai cittadini stessi. Le Associazioni vogliono, dunque,
